Bomb destroys 7 Nato tankers in Pakistan
At least seven tankers carrying fuel for Nato troops in Afghanistan were gutted yesterday when a bomb planted in one of the vehicles exploded at a terminal in Pakistan, officials said.
"A bomb fitted with a timer blew up an oil tanker. It triggered fire that engulfed six more tankers," local administration official Shahar Yar Khan told AFP. There were no reports of any casualties, he added.
Another official in the area said more than 30 fuel tankers were parked at a terminal in the Torkham border area of the troubled Khyber tribal region.
